To start they did not have enough luggage carts for all the people checking in so we had to make three trips from the parking garage to the 16th floor carrying all of out luggage. Our 2 bed/2 bath condo on the 16th floor (Unit 1605) was clean and had a great view, it looked as though it had recently... More

While our condo was great, we will not go back to this property. Unlike some, we had no issues with cleanliness of the condo or the condition of anything in it. The layout was perfect for our needs and the view was just what we wanted. We were glad to have free wifi, but it was slow and sometimes iffy.... More

We stayed on the 12th floor. The unit was ok and the view was beautiful. We had a one bedroom with a bunkroom and pullout sofa. The pullout sofa was the best bed in the unit. The elevators are horrible and were very slow (when they are working). The wifi is slow or nonworking most of the time. Tidewater has... More

The room was great and they have a wonderful view. That being said, we will not be back. They do not have enough luggage carts and we had to make several trips to hand carry everything in. The elevators are the slowest ever. Sometimes taking hours to get space in one. Plan to walk a lot of stairs if you... More

Love staying at Tidwater. The location is great, condo was awesome, beach is beautiful. The only issues that we had, were the elevators. They are very, very slow and sometimes you had to wait several turns to get on one. The higher up you are, the worse it is. We stayed on the 7th floor, so if it was too... More

The tidewater is in a great location in PCB. We stayed 5 nights and had a condo on the 25th floor. Unfortunately this was an real issue for us as the elevators are a real issue here. Had I known this prior to booking I would have changed locations. The wifi in our unit was modest at best with most... More

I am currently on vacation here.This by far is the worst resort I have ever encountered. The pictures of the room were very deceiving. We believed we were booking an ocean front room for 6. Yes sleeping wise there were enough beds. The room was very small. Room badly needed a fresh coat of paint. We were responsible for cleaning... More

We had read about the elevator issue prior to booking so we booked a unit on the lowest possible floor. This was a great decision because we have had to walk the stairs every trip. I would estimate the average wait time for an elevator between 8am-9pm would easily be 20-30 minutes. People were outraged at the wait. Check in... More

We stayed here last summer,and wanted to stay here when we came back this July;however they were booked. I love how you get to see and pick the room you are staying in. Our room was on the 11th floor a 2 bedroom. It was clean,updated,and very nice. The only downfall was the parking garage;it was low. The pool and... More

We taken two to three vacations per year for many years. We have stayed in many places & NEVER experienced the constant issue of catching an elevator. We walked our entire luggage & necessities up the stairs each & every time rather than stand & wait for who knows how long. Thankfully we stayed on the fourth rather than the... More
